About the Project
Umutara Deaf School’s student population steadily increased as its infrastructure improved. Being the only school of its kind in Eastern Rwanda, it attracts students from many communities. The swelling student population prioritized the renovation and expansion of the school dormitory. The dorm was built in 2008 to accommodate a mere 64 students. As the population exceeded 150 in 2017, change was needed. The expanded dormitory allows for students to be separated by sex and age groups.
